UTEP 48 Rice 0 Well it was a rainy day in Texas and it had major effect on the Rice players not much from the Miners. The Miners were just getting lucky breaks all day catches that were overthrown many broken tackles but hey I'm not complaining. The Rice QB wasn't very accurate as he overthrew he receivers almost every play. Carson Meger of UTEP threw for 166 yards 1 TD and 2 INT's. Joe Baynard ran for only 86 yards. UTEP had 364 total yards compared to Rice's 164. UTEP takes on ECU next week.
